East Longmeadow agrees to MGM surrounding community agreement

Posted: Updated:
EAST LONGMEADOW, MA (WSHM) -

East Longmeadow is the latest town to accept an MGM surrounding community agreement.

Members of the select board agreed to the proposal at a meeting tonight.

East Longmeadow will get $1.5 million from MGM to deal with the impact of a casino.

The deal can be increased once the casino is built if it turns out the money isn't enough. MGM is looking to build a resort casino in the south end of downtown Springfield.

Agawam and Ludlow were the first two communities to agree to a host agreement.
